"What astrology season is it," you ask. Allow our celestial pros to help you keep track. 

Not only have they given us insight into 2023's full moons, new moons and planetary retrogrades, but they've broken down all the things to expect from each astrology season this year. Consider this resource to be one of the best astrology gifts you could ask for! 

What astrology season is it?

Currently, we're in the middle of Pisces season 2023, which runs from February 18 to March 20, 2023. Consider this the perfect time for a literal and figurative spring cleaning, as well as a time to get in tune with your creative side.

"You must really take stock of what is in your life, and begin to understand what things are working for you and what needs to be discarded," says Nebula's astrologer Patrick Price. "Avoiding this now will mean you are playing catch up on what comes next as the planets begin to renew their cycles and offer you a blank canvas."

Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio, the water signs, will be particularly in tune with this time of the year. 

"They will have a strong need for closing chapters, renewing their life purpose and cleaning their souls from those friendships and relationships that don’t serve them anymore," Price adds.

All astrology seasons

Aries season

  • When: March 21 to April 20, 2023

We consider Aries season to be a reset of sorts ahead of the spring season. If we're changing our wardrobe, might as well change our energy, too. 

"It's a great time to set intentions for you as a person, not including anything else or anyone else in that vision," astrologer Liz Simmons previously told us. "I think the best way to prepare for it is to be selfish. [It's time to] do things for us: honor ourselves, honor our bodies and do things that work for us."

Taurus season

  • When: April 21 to May 20, 2023

Taurus season was a bag of mixed energy in 2022, but generally speaking, the season typically presents a good time for us to reconsider our priorities. 

"It's a time where we can slow down and decide where we want to spend our time, our energy, our money, our focus moving forward to build something of substance," astrologer Noush said.

Gemini season

  • When: May 21 to June 21, 2023

Simmons believed we were forced to get in tune with our authenticity last year during Gemini season. She also noted that we were likely faced with making decisions, particularly because the new moon in Gemini on May 30 was "pure" and "simplified the ideas of two roads, two paths, two actions."

Expect decision-making to be a theme for this season going forward. 

Cancer season

  • When: June 22 to July 22, 2023

Cancer season is an ideal time to slow down and unwind, so it works out perfectly that it aligns with summer vacation. Plus, Cancer season also asked us to evaluate our "home"—bodies, communities, actual abodes and anything that brings us comfort. 

"It's about filling up your own cup before giving to others first," says astrologer and numerologist Kaitlyn Kaehart. "If you're able to give to yourself, you're able to give more to your loved ones because Cancer loves to nurture."

This is definitely one of the astro seasons we welcome each year!

Leo season

  • When: July 23 to August 23, 2023

Leos love the spotlight, and that was certainly true in 2022...and likely will be in 2023, and 2024 and... (you get the picture).

"Leo season is going to be nothing short of drama, which is just what Leo likes, says astrologer Noush. "It can bring that activity, that passion, that energy, that spice. The drama can also be fun, it doesn’t have to be scary."

Virgo season

  • When: August 24 to September 22, 2023

"What is unique about Virgo season is that it encourages us to be selfish, but in the best possible way," Price previously told us. "Not only is it a much calmer time than most other seasons, but it is also the time for us to take time for ourselves."

Although it's a calm time and a much-needed rest from Leo season, Virgo season does require us to check items off our to-do list, but at our own pace.

Libra season

  • When: September 24 to October 23, 2023

Libra season is all about enjoyment and partnerships. It's the time to celebrate those you love and take part in the hobbies that make you happiest.

"Libra season is always a good time to focus on any type of relationships," astrologer Desiree Roby Antila told us.

Scorpio season

  • When: October 23 to November 21, 2023

Scorpio season is all about transformation. You'll be asked to face things head-on, and there's no beating around the bush when it comes to a Scorpio, and that's the truth!

Sagittarius season

  • When: November 21 to December 21, 2023

"Sagittarius season is a really great time to reconnect with the universe since it is quite a philosophical sign," astrologer Renée Watt previously suggested.

Luckily, it's prime time to do just that, so enjoy! (No surprise that it coincides with the holidays, right?)

Capricorn season

  • When: December 22, 2022 to January 20, 2023

Capricorn season is a positive time of the year and though a lot might be happening at once, it's a good time to prepare for the new calendar year.

Aquarius season

  • When: January 21 to February 19, 2023

Aquarius season is an opportunity to reconnect.

"Aquarius rules greater community and friendship, so it's really concerned with social connection," Simmons told us. 

As Mars' moved into Venus and Capricorn in 2022, and the notorious Mercury retrograde began, we all turned to those we love for a little solace, and likely will again, regardless of what the planets are doing in the year ahead.

Pisces season

  • When: February 20 to March 20, 2023

Pisces season was all about channeling that dreamy energy and bringing goals to life, But at times, the water sign's effect can cause us to dip into unrealistic territory. 

"Embrace the excitement of the imagination and mysticism, but also have some sort of guidelines, that way you don't get lost," Simmons warned us at the start of Pisces season in 2022.
